 Rj> First, you should do a search of Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man
 Rj> (OMIM), available thru GDB on the Internet URL= http://www.gdb.org. If
 Rj> you don't have WWW access, you can access GDB via gopher. For further
 Rj> help in accessing GDB and OMIM send Email to davidk at gdb.org or

 Rj> There are several hypertrichosis (note spelling for searching)
 Rj> syndromes. the general form being autosomal dominant.           
 Rj> The trait consists of long hairs growing from the helix of the pinna;
 Rj> see Dronamraju (1964) and Stern et al. (1964).  Controversy has
 Rj> prevailed as to whether it is Y-linked or autosomal, or perhaps both
 Rj> (in different families).  Rao (1970, 1972) proposed that hairy ears
 Rj> result from the interaction of two loci, one on the homologous
 Rj> segment of the X and Y and one on the nonhomologous segment of the Y.

 Rj> As you can see it has not been reconsidered critically in recent
 Rj> years. You may be rewarded by doing a literature search using Science

 Rj> I would be very interested to hear if you come up with any more recent

 Rj> There are several other syndromes as well.
